Design Team Masking Project using Stampin' Up!® Products

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator

Hi and welcome to my blog that is featuring the tutorial for the Design Team project from #stampinforall. The theme was masking. Click here to go to the group.

I had seen this type of masked background before and really wanted to give it a try. I didn't watch any tutorials I just got stuck in and had a go myself!

Stamp sets used

I used my most loved stamp set 'Butterfly Basics' for the focal point of this card. I used the masking technique to get the fern leaf behind the flower. I have done this many times so already had the flower fussy cut.

#toptip - keep your masks with the stamp sets to use again and again!

For the back ground I used 'Sheet Music'

I love this stamp and have used it on lots of cards, but never like this.

How I created the background 

  • Video tutorial link is below, this is quite hard to explain by writing down!
  • I used lots of scraps of cardstock that really were destined for the bin!
  • Washy tape
  • I taped the scrap down on my base exposing a section I wanted to ink
  • I stamped the music 
  • BEFORE removing the mask I got a sponge and distress inked the edges of what I had just stamped
  • I then covered this image up with another scrap and taped it down
  • I then moved the the original scrap to mask off another section I wanted to stamp
  • I needed to add quite a few scraps as I created more stamped sections
  • I kept going until the whole of the back ground was covered
  • I used Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla for this card

Stamping image

  • I stamped the image of the flower in Chocolate Chip
  • I them placed the mask of the flower over it and stamped the fern leaf in Mossy Meadow
  • I stamped the stripe and post mark in Blackberry Bliss
  • I am so glad to see these two colours back
  • I added the honeycomb image as well in Smokey Slate
  • I stamped the sentiment on Blackberry Bliss and added some fern around it in Mossy Meadow and some honeycomb in Smokey Slate around the sentiment
  • I used the Pretty Label Punch to cut it out
  • I wrapped some Linen Thread around the card
  • Distressed a doily with Crumb Cake and ripped if to add interest behind the sentiment 
  • This was then mounted not a Chocolate Chip card blank
  • I added a Very Vanilla mat to the inside which I distressed with Crumb Cake around the edges and stamped the fern leaf on as well
